Plane Lorentzian and Fuchsian Hedgehogs
Parts of the Brunn-Minkowski theory can be extended to hedgehogs, which are envelopes of families of affine hyperplanes parametrized by their Gauss map. F. Fillastre introduced Fuchsian convex bodies, which are the closed convex sets of Lorentz-Minkowski space that are globally invariant under the action of a Fuchsian group. In this paper, we undertake a study of plane Lorentzian and Fuchsian hedgehogs. In particular, we prove the Fuchsian analogues of classical geometrical inequalities (analogues which are reversed as compared to classical ones).

Keywords:Fuchsian and Lorentzian hedgehogs, evolute, duality, convolution, reversed isoperimetric inequality, reversed Bonnesen inequality

Continuous Self-maps of the Circle
Given a continuous map $\delta$ from the circle $S$ to itself we want to find all self-maps $\sigma\colon S\to S$ for which $\delta\circ\sigma = \delta$. If the degree $r$ of $\delta$ is not zero, the transformations $\sigma$ form a subgroup of the cyclic group $C_r$. If $r=0$, all such invertible transformations form a group isomorphic either to a cyclic group $C_n$ or to a dihedral group $D_n$ depending on whether all such transformations are orientation preserving or not. Applied to the tangent image of planar closed curves, this generalizes a result of Bisztriczky and Rival [1]. The proof rests on the theorem: {\it Let $\Delta\colon\bbd R\to\bbd R$ be continuous, nowhere constant, and $\lim_{x\to -\infty}\Delta(x)=-\infty$, $ \lim_{x\to+\infty}\Delta (x)=+\infty$; then the only continuous map $\Sigma\colon\bbd R\to\bbd R$ such that $\Delta\circ\Sigma=\Delta$ is the identity $\Sigma=\id_{\bbd R}$.
